LIVESTOCK RECORD BOOKS
There is one record book for each species that includes information for both market and non market projects. Use one book per species (poultry, rabbit, dairy, beef, sheep, goat, hog). List information for both breeding and market in the one record book. A reminder to those participating in the Ohio State Fair Skillathon to purchase an Ohio 4-H project specific record book.
